GRIEF SHOWN HERE
Flags at Half-Staff in the National
Capital Today.
SORROW IN MANY CIRCLES
III
!j Vice President Sherman Made Many
Friends During Residence Here.
TAFT TO ATTEND FUNERAL
jH
President Expects to Arrange Engagements
So as to Be Present
at Last Bites.
Flags are at half-staff throughout the
National Capital today. It is a tribute
of sorrow at the death of the Vice Preslji
dent of the United States, James Schoolj!
craft Sherman; in a gTeat number of
!i cases it is a sign of the grief conveyea
; by the more intimate and personal mes1
sage "Jim Sherman is dead."
i During his long residence in Washingt
ton as a member of the House and later
as Vice President, Mr. Sherman estabI
lished a wide circle of friends here. It
included both high and modest members
! ; of the big official family of Uncle Sam
i ; in the National Capital, joaembers of the
; diplomatic corps from the countries
t around the world, persons of prominence
\ j in Washington business and civic cir:
cles and a host of others of more modj
est position. Among them the expression
of grief today is universal, a
grief not so much that the Vice Presl,
dent was dead, but that "Jim Sherman"
, was dead.
Many officials of the government and
other residents of Washington will probably
attend the funeral. President Taft
is expected to go and a majority of the
members of his cabinet are likely to be
there. All of the ninety-three members
, of the Senate will be designated by Senator
Bacon, president pro tempore, as a
committee from that body to the funeral
rites and a big committee of representa!jj
tives will be designated by Speaker
Clark, through the sergeant-at-arms of
designated to act as presiding omcer ror
a couple of weeks or possibly a montn
_ after December lfi. The usual procedure
? is to ask unanimous consent that one of
these senators be designated as president
' . pro tempore for a specific period and up
jj' to tlie present there has Ijeen no object:
tion to mar the unanimous consent.
[: Upon the president pro tempore so desEI
ignated fal s all the duties of the Vice
E | President, but the senator does not have
E any right of succession to the presidency,
f; Should a vacancy occur in the PresiS
dency between now and March 4, Sec
retary of State Philander C. Knox
E would become President. Under de
succession act passed by Congress some
5 years ago he would be required to call
E Congress in extraordinary session after
11 becoming the chief executive. In this
S case, however, this provision would
practically have no e(fect, as Congress
E : will convene in regular session DecemE
ber 2 and be in session until the term
E of the new President begins March 4.
E Col. Daniel Ransdeil, sergeant-at-arms
of the Senate, was notified this afternoon
I by Senator Bacon, president pro tempore,
E: that ail members are designated by him
E! as a committee to represent the upper
E: house of Congress at the funeral of this
E | Vice President. Col. Rar.pdell at once
E; began notifying senators of the destgna |
tion and the time and place of the
:: funeral and sending them the proclamah
thm of the Jb-osidexit. ...
Tin- presence of several - senators In
Washington has suggested the use of a
j special car. to leave here tomorrow
: afternoon, Col. Ransdeil will go to take
official charge of the funeral on behalf
:: of the Senate and he will make full ar::
rangements for a senatorial funeral
i party, either from here or from New
:: York.

1814; William R. King, 1853; Henry Wilson,
1S75; Thomas A. Hendricks, 1885;
Garret A. Ilobart, 1800. Only two Presidents
died natural deaths during their
terms of office. William Henrv Harrison
and Zacliary Taylor; three were the victims
of violence, Abraham Lincoln, Jamea
A. Garfield and- William McKinley. This.
Is the third vacancy in the vtpe presidency
in the short space of thirteen years.
First came the vacancy caufced by the
' death of Ylcfe. President Hobart, and that
was followed byv a vacancy of practically
j? four years,.when Col. Rooseveft succeeded
|u the martyred McKinley.
The vice presidency will remain vacant
until .'March 4, when a new Mice President?to.
be chosen next Tuesday, will be
sworn in. In the case of the death or
disability of the Vice President, his
duties as President of the Senate fall
upon the president pro tempore. Because

President Sherman, the United Commerce
Court adjourned a few minutes after the
court proceedings had opened today. Assistant
United States Attorney Denison
brought the matter to the attention of
the court, and the chief Justice directed
that a minute be entered In the court's
record explaining the fact that the court
had taken this method of expressing Its
regret and respect.
COURT ADJOURNS FOR DAT.
District Judiciary Fays Respect to
Former Vice President.
The Supreme Court of the District of
Columbia transacted no business today
out of respect to the memory of Vice
President Sherman. The sessions of the
court will be resumed tomorrow.
Attorney Henry E. Davis announced
the death of Mr. Sherman to Chief Justice
Clabaugh and the latter Immediately
called a meeting of the justices In general
term. The suggestion was made
that the court follow the precedent set by
the United States Supreme Court on the
death of Vice President Hendricks when
it adjourned over the date of the funeral.
The crowded condition of the motion
calendar, which is heard only on Fridays,
prevented the court adopting this method.
It was then considered best to
adjourn for a day only as was done by
this court at the death of Vice President
Hobart In 1899.
Each of the justice returned to his
courtroom after the general term meeting
and announced the adjournment for
the day out of respect to the dead Vice
President.
No action on the death of Mr. Sherman
was taken In the Court of Appeals of
the District of Columbia today, as that
court is in recess until next Monday.
The United States branch of the Police
Court was a'so adjourned early today by
Judge Mu'.lowny on the motion of Ralph
Given, assistant United States attorney.
Judge Pugh adjourned 4Jie District of
Columbia branch of the court at an early
hour on the motion of Gus. A. Schuldt,
assistant corporation counsel.*
NATIONAL COM
SUMMONED Br HUES
Called to Meet in Chicago November
12 to Elect a Successor
to Sherman.
NEW YORK, October SI.?Chairman
Ililles of the republican national committee
shortly before 1 o'clock this morning
announced that he had called a
meeung or mo national committee tor
November 12 in Chicago to select a
successor to the late James S. Sherman
as the republican candidate for Vice
President.
Mr. Hilles made the following statement:
"The national convention which met in
Chicago in June delegated to the national
committee power to fill vacancies on the
national ticket. The death of Mr. Sherman,
candidate of the republican party
for Vice President at the coming election,
makes it incumbent upon the national
committee to nominate a candidate
in his place.
"The nomination, however, cannot possibly
be made prior to the election next
Tuesday. Such a nomination can properly
be made only after due and reasonable
notice to all the members of the
committee. Such notice cannot be given
in less than six days. It Is. therefore,
manifestly Impossible to hold such a
meeting prior to the election.
"Meantime, no difficulty or inconvenience
arises to the voters at the election
next Tuesday, because the votes to be
cast then are for electors and npfr for
candidates for either President or Vice
President, and t^ie death of. Air. Sherman,
therefore, does not affect the validity of
election of the electors.
Former Vice President and Mrs. Fairbanks
said: "We loved him as a friend
and loved him as an able and truthful
servant."
There were also expressions of profound
sympathy from a'l the cabinet
members and from many American
ministers to foreign countries as well as
from foreign representatives in the United
States. Whitelaw Held spoke of the Vice
President's death as a "great loss."
Taft's Words of Sympathy.
Immediately after arriving in New York
last night President Taft dispatched the
followpig:- telegram to Mrs. Sherman:
"Mts. Tart and I extend to you our
heartfelt sympathy in your great sorrow.
Oht hearts go out to you in the loss of
your noble and loving husband. Vice
President Sherman had rendered distinguished
service to his country, and his
death ten yeans before the time allotted
by the psalmist is a great loss. As a
member of Congress and as Vice President
he endeared himself to all who knew
him. His memory is full of sweetness
and light,"

OUTCOME OF INVESTIGATION
__________
Reported That $100,000,000 Bond
Issue Is Contemplated?Congressional
Legislation Wanted.
Corporation Counsel E. H. Thomas to- 1
day was instructed by the Commissioners
of the District of Columbia to institute a
proceeding: in equity to prevent the merging
of certain local utilities with the new
thirty-million-dollar Maryland - Virginia
Railway Company. /
This, in all probability, will be the last
step taken to prevent the consummation
of the merger prior to the convening of
Congrress, when renewed effort will be
made by the local authorities to obtain
the passage of a public utilities commas- ,
sion bill.
Legal Proceedings Directed.
On motion of Engineer Commissioner
Judson. the Commissioners this morning
signed the following order:

expressing the church's appreciation of
his character. Dr. Ilolden gave out the
following:
"Words fail to express my sense of
personal Joss in the death of Mr. Sherman.
I prize the memory of an uninterrupted
friendship throughout the eig^t
years of this pastorate. Mr. Sherman's
interest in our work has been constant,
his cheery confidence inspiring and his
kindly counsel invaluable. I have learned
to know him as a man of deep faith. Repeatedly
he has seized the opportunity
to speak for Christ at our public gatherings,
his words carrying a weight with
men which any preacher might covet."
Sergeant-at-Arms D. M. Kansdell has
telegraphed that fifty members of the
Senatft will attend. The President's cabinet
and many members of five House of
Representatives also are expected.

ceived by Mrs. Sherman were many from
senators and members of the House of
Representatives. Senators Gal linger of
New Hampshire and Bacon of Georgia,
who have acted alternately as president
pro tempore of the Senate in Mr. Sherman's
absence, were among the first to
send messages.
Senator Galllnger said: "Mr. Sherman's
death is to me in tbc nature of a
personal loss, which no words can adequately
express. May the good Lord
bless you."
Senator Bacon: 1 beg to express my
profound sympathy in this hour of your
unspeakable a iction in the death of your
universally beloved husband. Ry all the
people of the United States his passing
away will be deplored as a great national
loss and by each senator he will
be mourned as a personal friend."
Speaker Champ Clark of the House
wired:
"You have our heartful sympathy in
your great sorrow. May God bless you
and yours.*'

of acquiring the control of certain District
public utilities, together with
other public utilities lying in adjacent
states, and that sucn action, if
consummated without the supervision of
a public utilities commission or the authority
of Congress, will be detrimental
to the interests of the District of Columbia
and its citizens and taxpayers, 1
move that the corporation counsel be instructed
to bring a proceeding in equity,
or any other proceeding he may deem
proper, in the name of the District of
Columbia, for the purpose of preventing
such change of status against the making
of contracts between the District and
other corporations detrimental to the interests
of the public within the District
of Columbia."
Action to Be Begun Soon.
The office of the corporation counsel
has beeti investigating the merger question.
for some time, and it is understood
that the Commissioners' decision is the
outcome of this investigation. The action
to be brought will be filed In the District
of Columbia Supreme Court within the
next few days. i
It is expected that the legal action to
talrnn hv thn f'nmmiefilAnprs will im
mediately precede a meeting of Ihe stockholders
of the Maryland-Virginia Railway
Company to be held in Alexandria.
Vaj, f November M>, for the purpose of
considering changing the name of the
company to the Washington Utilities
Company and increasing its capitalization !
from $30,000,000 to $50,000,000.
Proposed $100,000,000 Bond Issue.
It is said that action also will be taken '
on a proposition to authorize the cor- ,
poration to isssue $100,000,000 worth of i
bonds. |
Persons back of the merger plans,
when informed of the order issued by the
Commissioners today, would make no
comment upon it. 1
Following the refusal of the Virginia
corpafratfcn com mission recently to^alloV
th?f BraflUoek Eight and Power and the
Arlington Electric companies to amalgamate
with the new concern, announcement
was made that steps would be
taken looking toward the merging of certain
local utilities with the big holding
company.
It is said that there will be a meeting
November l> of the directors of the. Washington-Virginia
Railway Company to
consider reorganization plans with a
view, to becoming a part of the proposed
affiliated interests.
President King's Statement.
According to a statement authorized by
President Clarence P. King of the Washington
Railway and Electric Company,
no meeting of the directors of that company
for the purpose of considering the
merger is conterpplated.
The proposal for the merging of certain
restrict of Columbia. Virginia and Mary
land utilities has met with opposition from
the District Commissioners from the first.
While repeatedly stating that, under
certain conditions, they would not oppose
the uniting of large corporations engaged
in business here, the District i.eads have
expressed their opposition to the bringing
about of a merger that would not be
supervised by a public utilities commission.
,
Will Ask Action by Congress.
A8 a result of disclosures concerning
the merger plans, the Commissioners, It .
is announced, will recommend amendments
to the utilities bill that is now
pending in Congress. One of these will i
provide that no local corporation may '
dispose of its stock to another without
thi< consent of a utilities commission.
It is said to be practically assured that
the proposed merger will be the subject
of a congressional investigation. It is
known that certain members of Congress
are taking an active interest in the matter
and but little surprise would be occasioned
if a resolution for an investigation
should be introduced the day Congress
convenes. .
The refusal of the corporation commlsVtrcrinia
tn tillAU; the RroHrlrtnlr
Oiuii vi 1 ? tA B-**"" ?..v ? wvtuuvn
Light and Power and the Arlington Electric
^ompapies to become . a. part of
the proposed merger was the result of opposition
made by the Alexandria County
Lighting Company. The latter concern
owns some of the stock of tho Arlington ,
Electric Company, and contended that the ,
merger, as proposed, was contrary to the
law Qf Virginia. The Virginia commission
sustained this view. j
It is understood that the present merger
plans call for a change of the name
of the corporation and absorption of the j
Maryland-Virginia Railway Company,
which operates electric lines to Mount ,
Vernon, Fairfax and other Virginia '
points. j
It is understood that the promoters of ;
the merger believe that, with the>se proposed
changes effected, the corporation
will be in a position to acquire other big
utilities concerns, ^mong them a number
operating in the District of Columbia.

Piano of Class A. You receive a bonus of
$50 for the first $100, which gives you a
credit of $150. The balance is $47, on which
! you get a bonus of $4.70. That makes a nice
Christmas gift of $54-7? earned by membership
in our popular circle. Then take $54.70
